Computing careers

This course is now over, unless a new maintainer is found.


The computing careers course is a series of posts by LinuxChix who are working or have worked in computing about their career path.

"Lessons" in this course are more like stories or career histories. The aim of the course is to tell lots of different stories which will be useful to other Chix wondering how they can break into or advance in computing careers.
